169 Let my cry come before You, O LORD;
Give me understanding according to Your word.
170 Let my supplication come before You;
Deliver me according to Your word.
171 My lips shall utter praise,
For You teach me Your statutes.
172 My tongue shall speak of Your word,
For all Your commandments are righteousness.
173 Let Your hand become my help,
For I have chosen Your precepts.
174 I long for Your salvation, O LORD,
And Your law is my delight.
175 Let my soul live, and it shall praise You;
And let Your judgments help me.
176 I have gone astray like a lost sheep;
Seek Your servant,
For I do not forget Your commandments.
- Lord, hear my prayers and help me to be wise.
- Give me understanding to know Your word and discern the world around by its lens.
- Deliver me as I cry out to You, O LORD.
- I will praise You for Your great words and abundant blessings.
- Please continue to teach me that I may know more of You.
- I will speak Your word to those who will hear it.
- I will speak the righteous and holy words of my God.
- Help me as I learn and live by Your word.
- Reach out Your mighty hand to assist me in my distress.
- I long for You, Your presence, and Your word at all times.
- Give me life, for the world only offers death.
- Let my life bring glory unto You.
- When I stray from Your will, seek me out and find me.
- Help me in my quest to know You. I will not forget You, but I need You to help me find You when I am lost.
- Keep Your word in my mind, in my heart, and on my lips. It is life and it is truth. I need Your word, O LORD!
